Can governance be marked out of 10?

Unfortunately the decision that governance is bad only seems to occur after a scandal, but good governance should prevent scandals from occurring in the first place.  Do you think good governance can or should be measured periodically, as part of an organisational health check? What are the right metrics? What are the advantages and disadvantages of publishing the results?

  • Although the idea is attractive in its simplicity it is seeks to simplify something that doesn't lend itself well to that. Another potential shortcoming is the danger that a mark about the quality of governance is taken by the reader as being a guarantee of future viability when nothing can guarantee that. Perhaps more useful it would be some sort of assessment even if internal about whether the standard of governance that the company or other organisation wants is the standard of governance that it has. This could be something that organisations could then disclose or report upon.
